Letter from Virginia Apgar to Hans Karl Wendl (November 22, 1963)
some weeks ago you were so kind to send me some papers concerning your Apgar Scoring Chart.
In the name of our hospital, Frauenklinik Finkenau, Hamburg, I thank you very much for your effort.
Now we are going to have new forms printed. As we do intend to induce the Apgar Scoring Chart in Hamburg - Germany - I would
like to know, if anything was changed during the past year or if you have got new ideas.
